Bluewaters is an artificially created island off the coast of Dubai at the Dubai Marina. The landmark of the island will be a viewing wheel - the Ain Dubai. Ain Dubai is to have a diameter of almost 210 meters and will be the largest Ferris wheel in the world. The Ferris wheel is to be completed by the beginning of 2020. Information about the construction progress as well as the tickets can be found in our article about the Ain Dubai.
Marsal Al Arab
Two new artificial islands are to be built around the Burj al Arab. They are to be used primarily for leisure facilities. For example, the Wild Wadi Waterpark, which already exists in Jumeirah, will move to the island. It will double in size. It will also house a pearl museum, an outdoor theatre, an underwater aquarium, and a shopping, tourism and business area. However, we guarantee that the thinkers and drivers of Dubai will surprise us with more top attractions!
Note: According to unofficial reports, this project has been paused for the time being.
The first rotating building is to be built in Dubai as early as 2020. All individual floors will be able to rotate 360 degrees around the center of the building. The constantly changing silhouette of the Dynamic Tower will have an enormous impact on Dubai's skyline. Inside the gigantic tower, there will be high-priced villas, offices and a luxury hotel.
Dubai Harbour and Lighthouse
For all yacht and boat lovers, a new gigantic project is emerging in Dubai: The new Dubai Harbour with an iconic lighthouse. The new mega-port Dubai Harbour will have space for a terminal for cruise ships and three different marina facilities. The Dubai Lighthouse will be located at the top of the port. In addition to a hotel, it will also house a 360-degree viewing platform.
Soon the Burj Khalifa is to be surpassed in its height. The Creek Tower is to be the next tallest building in the world. With a total height of over 1000 meters, it will literally put the 828 meters high Burj Khalifa in the shade. A completely new urban district is to be built around the building - with Dubai Creek Harbour in the center.
The Palm Tower is going to be a new hotspot on the Palm Jumeirah palm island. The building is to have a height of 240 meters and will accommodate a luxury hotel as well as several apartments. The highlight of the Palm Tower will be the infinity pool at a height of 210 meters. Guests will be able to swim around the entire tower with a panoramic view. The Palm Tower will be located in the immediate vicinity of the Nakheel Mall that is also under construction.
Dubai is planning a new lifestyle and tourism area. Besides an indoor ski hall - which will be the longest in the world - the highest residential complex is also to be built. But that's not all: the world's longest water features, a shopping mall, a huge water park, a Kulutr museum and much more will soon be built there.
The Ciel Tower is to become the highest hotel in the world. With a total height of around 360 meters, it will set new standards in the hotel business. The Tower is being built in the Dubai Marina and will extend the skyline next to the CAYAN Tower ("Infinity Tower") with a new magnificent building. Due to the perfect location to Ain Dubai and a gigantic viewing platform on the roof, it will offer a breathtaking view of the giant Ferris wheel, Ain Dubai.
With the Burj Jumeirah, Dubai will be enriched by a skyscraper of superlatives. The building is to have a height of 550 meters and will be built in Al-Sufouh district. A new district - Downtown Jumeirah - will also be built around the building. In addition to a viewing platform, the Burj Jumeirah will house a hotel, offices, apartments, and restaurants.
This Shapes Dubai's Future Plans and Visions
Dubai is known for its mega-projects, which outshine one world record after the other. The highest building, the most luxurious hotel, the fastest elevator, one of the largest artificially created islands, the largest fireworks display in the world and much more. The Emirate of Dubai makes it possible! What is going to happen in the next few years in this gigantic state on the Persian Gulf? What world records will Dubai conquer next?
Most construction projects in Dubai are privately financed. What makes Dubai so attractive to build there? In the desert city, there are very few regulations for the construction and the necessary building permits are given by Emir Mohammed bin Raschid Al Maktum himself.
